Assuring the eating quality of MSA beef requires standards to be maintained from paddock-to-plate.

Grading MSA beef
MSA accredited graders collate information from the producer, supervise processing standards and collect individual carcase attributes using a uniform set of standards. Results are allocated to an individual carcase and the outcome results in eating quality information for individual cuts combined with days of ageing required and recommended cooking methods.
